consult with from time to time, democracy for america, which showed that a very significant number of democrats would be much less likely to vote for senator lincoln if they knew she was opposed to the public option or if she were to filibuster the bill. so people are not looking for people to filibuster the bill. it's one thing -- if you happen to vote against the public option, we can disagree. you certainly have every right to vote against the public option. what you don't have a right to do if you're caucusing with the democratic party and you're on a committee because of the democratic party is vote against your majority leader as he tries to conduct the business of the senate. that you don't have a right to do. you don't have a right to do is to stop the american people from considering this bill. or stop the senate from considering this bill. >> governor dean, do you think that these four senators can call themselves democrats when it's, you know, it's written right in the party platform? universal health care for all americans? >> look, there's plenty of room to disagree wi

one of the unique advantages that america has which is the fact that we are able to develop capital and credit in a way that allows people who want to go out and take risks and create jobs to get that capital and credit. that's something that no other nation has yet been able to replicate at the levels that we have been able to do it as a nation. and we have to be careful that responding to a dries sis which had a lot of underlying causes, that we don't fundamentally harm that unique advantage that america has. and so i guess that's how i come at this. so let's look at the causes that cause this crisis. we were all there on the front line when it collapsed on us. primarily it was real estate. it was a real estate bubble. now, i've been through three of these in my professional experien experience, once as a bank attorney for a small bank in new hampshire, once as governor of new hampshire when five of my seven largest banks failed and this time. in p every instance a real estate bubble is a function of the fact that there's a disconnect between underwriting and responsibility. loans

or not it creates mass relief for the struggling homeowners of america, that is entirely different story. host: i think that even argue that it has not. 57% of all mortgages modified through fannie mae have defaulted again within 12 months. if you were in trouble before, the majority of people getting help are still in trouble. >> this program was supposed to help 3 million people. only 650,000 homeowners are involved in the initial stages. as of september 1 only 1711 homeowners have had their monthly payments permanently reduce. that at a cost of $27 billion. that is what has been spent on this program. three to 4 million were hoped to be held. 650,000 in the initial stages of the program. only 100 -- only 1711 received reductions. bill: is this getting anywhere? >> the problem is that it is an intensely bureaucratic confusion of paper work on both sides, plus an avalanche of foreclosures in the marketplace and underlying everything is unemployment. people are not buying homes in this environment. bill: the unemployment rate might be 10% but it is higher when you consider the people underemploye
generation. that's why this museum is such an important part of who we are as a people in america. and that's why that legacy was handed off to my brothers and me, influenced all of us, everyone of us served in the military. not because we're more patriotic than the next-door neighbor, but it was part of who we are. it was part of who my parents were. every one of my uncles served in world war ii. the media today is full of stories about how desperate the situation is in afghanistan. i had brought with me for a five different newspapers, all of which have a story here on page one or about how bad things are in afghanistan. you can take the word afghanistan out of the article and two years ago the word would have been iraq. well, guess what? they won the war in iraq. soldiers, sailors, airmen, guardsmen and marine in the united states of america won that war. and yet you would not know that from the media, because as soon as the war turned around they stopped covering it. and today all the bad news is coming out of afghanistan. i would like to remind young people who didn't have that blessin
for debate. how many people in america know that the reason we are here is because the republicans don't even want to bring the bill to the floor for debate and amendment. while, that's their right under the rules of the senate is their right. they can filibuster, deily, obstruct. they can say no. but just as surely as that is their right it is our responsibility as democrats to move this bill forward. i would remind my colleagues on the other side of the ogle that last year voters overwhelmingly voted for barack obama to lead changes, to make changes, and one of the changes he campaigned so hard for most changes in the health care system. and just as surely voters elected democrats to majorities, big majorities in the house and senate to do the same thing so it's our responsibility to lead. and that's what we are doing now by bringing this bill to the floor. we are taking another giant step toward fulfilling the mandate, the mandate the people of this country gave to president obama and the democratic party last november to undertake a comprehensive reform of america's health care system. an
approach should use? caller: he should not make america look weak, which is what he is doing. host: baltimore, up next. we are asking about the president's foreign policy. subtle and strategic or weak and naive? caller: i think he is subtle and strategic. i am concerned about the earlier caller said -- and said that force is the american way. that is horrible. we should be able to compromise, talk with each other, and except differences. -- accept differences. for americans to be that forceful, i am more scared of them then i am of what others can do to us. host: when you say that we should be trying to talk, talk about the president's speech that he is making on tuesday. what are you expecting to hear from the speech and how does that apply? caller: i do not want him to go to war. unfortunately that is a big part of life sometimes. you have to use of force. i think it he has discussed this for awhile with us. the previous administration has gone in without talking. if i know that i have to use force sometimes, it can be necessary, but i think that the way that the president did it
